Promoted to Master Sergeant at last!
I have been waiting for this moment for the longest time. This month (July) I can officially be called Master Sergeant (E-8). :willynilly: I've been doing that job for the last 4 years, but will finally be getting paid for it.
I want to thank this forum and of course Instantcert for helping me along the way in pursuit of my degrees. I'm sure my education helped me stand out against my peers that allowed me to get selected for promotion. So I say again, Thank you to all that have helped me.
6 more years of this Army stuff before I hit 20 and can finally retire. :hurray:
